HERE'S HOW:

STEP 1: Prep shutter by lightly sanding any rough or glossy surfaces; wipe with clean, damp cloth to remove dust or debris.

STEP 2: Using the flat brush, paint the shutter, being careful to apply evenly in between the slats; allow paint to dry, following suggested drying time on the can label.

Optional: Apply a second coat of paint for added durability.

STEP 3: If needed, fasten picture-hanging hardware to the back of the shutter, according to the instructions supplied in the kit.

STEP 4: Hang finished shutter on the wall.
